Set in medieval times with a great balance between fiction and historical fact, this book certainly doesn't disappoint when it comes to keeping the reader interested and involved in the story.
It was intrigueing to see the way the romantic triangle evolved, only to come to sudden halt, due to certain visions and misinterpreted dreams. Going by the ending it must mean there is a third part on the way, I can only hope so.
Kudos to the author for Pirmin's special ending or closure. It was sincere and warm without being overly dramatic.
As always the tale flowed smoothly with solid characters and realistic scenarios. The story links back once or twice to remind us exactly where and who the Swyzer children were and the adults they have become. Bonded by mutual pain, suffering and warfare. They still stand as one.
The book starts where Altdorf left of, with the preparation for the Habsuburg revenge for the loss of the Altdorf fortress to the 'Eidgenossen' - the Swiss locals. The cast of characters remains the same as in the first book and one gets a slightly druid influenced (and with some other artistic freedoms) retelling of the preparations to the Battle of Morgarten, the battle itself and the subsequent consequences. You also get a stylized account of how the Swiss mercenaries came to be, how they came to be organized in the way they were and where the choice of halberd and pike as a weapon comes from.
The author manages to weave in several personal stories into this historical background and the book overall comes with a good balance between action and scene setting that will likely appeal to a fairly wide readership - it certainly is a very quick and pleasant read.
If you enjoy getting a feel for different times / places through lightly fictionalized accounts, I am sure that this book does a solid job of giving you just that for the creation of Switzerland.Read more ›

This volume follows on from the previous story and is equally as good. Refreshing to have a story about other nations. Characters are well-rounded and believable. Read morePublished 15 months ago by A. Morgan
